The London Construction Consolidation Centre (LCCC) has more than doubled in size in the past 12 months, as building contractors seek alternative delivery methods in the face of congestion and local authority constraints.

Operated by Wilson James, the LCCC now comprises 12,000m² of warehousing space – last month taking on a third 4,200m² unit to handle additional volumes.

LCCC is currently servicing 15 major construction projects in the capital, including construction works at University College London and the Bloomsbury transformation programme.

The operation has achieved Fors Gold standard and recently won a City of London sustainability award for its work on tackling climate change and air quality.

Bob Dempsey, operations manager south, at Wilson James, said: “Given the severe delivery constraints and the restrictions placed on them by local authorities, more and more major construction projects in central London are realizing the benefits of consolidation logistics.

"Also coupled with the need for greater certainty of supply as well as delivering sustainability benefits.”
